BMW Burns in Fiery Chinatown Inferno [VIDEO]
Friday evening, a parked car in Chinatown erupted in flames, emitting plumes of dark smoke into the Lower East Side sky.
The vehicle – a silver BMW sedan – was parked outside 114 Madison Street (near Market Street) when the fire happened.
There were a few loud explosions, which were most likely the tires popping. Firefighters responded promptly to the inferno and extinguished in about seven minutes.
Reader Jesse S. captured the remarkable scene and shared it with us.
It’s unclear what sparked the fire, or whether anyone was hurt in the incident.
